Stayed here last weekend and had a fantastic time. The Arthington is a first class guest house. Steve and Elaine were the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful rooms created by Elaine and a really good breakfast menu. Steve does a really good hot toddy. We would all definitely stay here again. Thank you Steve and Elaine.

Just back from another fantastic stay at The Arthington!

One of the many highlights was a birthday balloon and box of chocolates awaiting my wife on our arrival in our room! What a lovely, thoughtful gesture (thanks again to you both!)

Our room (room 7) was perfect as usual; beautifully decorated and wonderfully spotless. The bed and pillows were very comfortable - we slept well!

Breakfast is amazing - you are totally spoilt for choice and well looked-after.

We simply love staying here and appreciate all the hard work Steve and Elaine put in to keep it modern, fresh and clean including all the little extras they provide. They truly have thought of everything!

We cannot praise Steve and Elaine enough; they go out of their way to make you feel at home, in fact we no longer feel like customers, just good friends!

Do yourself a favour - book into The Arthington. Why would you stay anywhere else?

Me and my partner came here for a weekend away, it was fantastic. Steve and his wife are extremely nice and easy to get along with. The rooms are modern and are incredibly clean, I can not fault any service that was provided to us. The breakfast was fantastic and Steve and his wife was helpful throughout our visit. We defiantly would recommend this hotel to any age group and couples!

I originally come from Blackpool (now living in Birmingham), I tend to visit my family every 4-6 weeks and normally stay at my parents house.

However, after seeing the hotel feature on the Hotel Inspector I thought it looked amazing and didn't look like a hotel from Blackpool.

well my expectations were surely met!!!Steve and Elaine this hotel is a credit to you - we will certainly not be staying at my parent house anymore - your hospitality was second to none and I thank you for making me and Caroline feel like we were at home!!!!!!

I can not recommend this place enough.

We were welcomed by cheery Steve and sat us down with a cup of tea and a cake, Steve talked us through the place. Steve and Elaine are great, like a couple of friends you haven't seen in a while!

After booking a small double (which was on the small side but still a lovely little room) Steve told us the executive double was available which had recently appeared on "the hotel inspector" to show what an excellent b&b room should look like and believe me it is excellent. The word "spotless" is bandied about a lot but I'm serious not a speck of dirt was encountered on our stay.

The price was about on par with what you'd expect from a good b&b but the little extras you get from Steve and Elaine make booking of this place a no brainer. We had mentioned briefly during our welcome cuppa that it was my wife's birthday that weekend and thought nothing more of it... When we got downstairs for our breakfast the next morning (which was superb btw) Steve had happy birthday banners up and was playing happy birthday to my wife which embarrassed the hell out of her but in a good way.... They even left her a little pressie on her breakfast table! The bathrobes, the sweets, the quirky little fixtures throughout etc etc etc.... The little extras are brilliant.

Thank you so much for our stay guys it made our weekend and can't wait to see you again!
